Pulev and Joshua engage in face to face verbal sparring

Heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua and Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev pulled off their masks and engaged in face-to-face verbal sparring on Friday at their weigh-in for Saturday’s title clash. The 31-year-old Joshua, who is putting his WBA, IBF and WBO belts on the line at Wembley Arena, hit the scales at 17 stone and 2.8 pounds.

That was heavier than a year ago when the Briton reclaimed his titles from Andy Ruiz in Saudi Arabia, at 16 stone 13, but lighter than the first Ruiz fight where he weighed in at 17 stone nine and suffered a shock defeat.

Pulev, 39, stepped up a pound lighter than Joshua and was in fighting mood.

“I’m amazing. Amazing boxing, amazing style. I’ll show the whole world tomorrow that I am much better than him,” the Bulgarian told Sky Sports.

“I don’t hate him. I tell him three, four, five times that I respect him... I respect that he takes this fight. “I feel amazing. I am now in paradise. I want to give the people a show because the people need a show because now is pandemic time and only movies not reality. Now we need reality and I show the people. Tomorrow evening, new world champion.”
